Arizona property tax scam

It looks as though the real estate scam artists are now targeting parts of Arizona with an advertising solicitation designed to look "official" with regard to a "2009 property tax reduction review". Not only has the state's deadline for appeals for 2009 property taxes already past, but this company seeks a $189 "processing fee".

Fortunately, Arizona Atty. General Terry Goddard has issued a warning to the state's homeowners, although it is not yet known how many homeowners may have already fallen for this scheme.

Since I don't know how a scammer thinks, I would think that now that a warning has been issued in their targeted area, these crooks would start to target other areas. If you are a home owner, please be aware that such a scam exists. If you are a real estate or mortgage professional anywhere in the country, you may wish to warn your client base about what has happened in Arizona.

It is a helpful way to get your name and your services across to your client base.
